Re: “High and Dry: Malletts Bay Cottagers Must Vacate Their Homes

This article would have been much more interesting/informative if she'd have explained why they lost. what did the opinion say? One court said this punishment was too harsh but the SC said otherwise.
Can't she interview people to help us understand this?
Re the SC decision: What was the vote? Who voted for and against? was there a dissent? The article doesn't tell us anything much about the decision (which is the heart of the story). Who edited this?
This is another example of kind of lazy, half-baked 7 days reporting. Here's the article summary: restate the legal history and interview people who are going to lose their homes.
How about a little explanation for what seems like an extraordinary ruling.
Also, why were they forced to sell back their stake in the property that they had purchased legally? another unanswered question.
Alicia, next time, please interview a few lawyers, or legal minds and maybe read the decision.

Re: “Norwich University Band to Perform at Trump’s Inauguration

Sean Moran not one vote was cast in the election by the Russian hackers. All the intelligence agencies agree with that. And if the bought off main stream media did their job and investigated Clinton with as much vigger as they did Trump and his comments about everything under the sun, the Russians would not have beat them to the punch. Norwich is a great university that produces some of the finest America has to offer. My thanks goes out to the cadets that will be going to DC and representing Vermont in a positive way.

Public expressions are opinions and not invitations for debate. Outlaw "frivolous or silly or not normal" expressions and you make us all pirates and I don't want to be a pirate.

Albert how do you know I'm not a woman. Just because I don't agree with the actions these women are taking does not make me misogynistic, it just means that I don't think their action will result in any real change in our country. Also try tell the Democrats voting never changed anything. Everyone in this country the exercised their right to vote for Trump proved that voting can change things. But I not sure why I'm telling this to a self described anarchist you have already given up on the American political process I'm sure.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: 2016 Census Data Reveal Most Vermonters are Subarus

This is pure BS. Toyota FJ-40s have been lurking in the shadows for years doing the jobs that Subarus won't do. Everybody knows it but no one wants to talk. It is evident if you just count their siblings and all their distant relatives that snuck in while Shumlin was covering for them. Most have last names like Tacoma and Tundra. I tell you, this has gone too far. Time for action!

Election time surely does bring out the crazies. And another day goes by.. Incredible how time continues to pass, and how the world, despite all things political, manages to keep on spinning. Miraculous really. Keep breathing people, this is not the end, and could very well be the beginning of something not fuled by hate at all, but by justice, in a way we've never yet experienced. Time will tell. Until then, lets all try to be more focused on loving the people around us, rather than fearing the ones you only know through television PROGRAMMING.

Re: “Playtime: Chance McNiff, 'thoughts count'

Chance creates a life rhythm that enchances our prespectives. I had a few pictures of the Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Massachusetts that were just static by themselves. When l combined one of Chance's tracks to the video, the plain became majestic and mysterious. see for yourself at youtube..Also the art work by Ms. Jewett is the portal into the realm where Chance resides.

Re: “Burlington Activist to Challenge Council President Knodell

As a concerned citizen, I have to speak up here with a dissenting opinion. Not everyone loves Genese Grill, for a host of reasons that I will leave it up to others to investigate. She has a demonstrated history in this community that is far from pleasant. Please elect a respectable, experienced, level-headed, and empathetic representative with integrity!

Re: “Norwich University Band to Perform at Trump’s Inauguration

you may want to keep your negative comments to yourself because really you just come off as ignorant and arrogant....seriously dude- look in the mirror Kevin Thibault...people have the right to be offended- the man has made a mockery of the election and soon to be the office- which he supposedly won- WITH THE HELP OF RUSSIA.. As for the real world, I am glad they did that for you, albeit a bit slanted .

Robert J posting makes no sense...so the folks have 4 dogs? Shame on the family with the property involved....it is their property- that they are receiving rent for- its their responsibility to keep the property up- THE RENTERS RENT THEIR OWN UNITS...much like a mobil-home park. Where is the hell was the courts mind on this day?

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Citizen.............we anarchist like to say that if voting ever really changed anything then the capitalist class would have outlawed it long ago. By suggesting that these women "take off their dish gloves" and put their "big girl panties' on you not only reveal your women-hating misogyny but your ignorance of the role of protest in the United States. On MLK day, reflect on how immoral this country has been from genocide against Native Americans to slavery to Hiroshima to Vietnam to Jim Crow to Black Lives Matter to Standing Rock, ad nauseum. Read a book instead of lecturing people with your limited range of understanding and vile value system

And by the way Beyonce is no feminist she is still married to a man that has cheated and probably still cheats on her. She sounds like a real strong woman to me. NOT.

Hey good luck with your protest. In 4 years when the sky has not fallen and the world is a safer place due to President Trump be sure to stop protesting long enough to vote.

Re: “At Caucus, Burlington Dems Back Progressive Council Prez Knodell

Genese Grill got caught trying to run a dirty campaign and stir up negativity against her opponent by impersonating an anonymous commenter online, and her defense is that she's been using her real name on her campaign page? I would certainly hope so! If she *really* wanted to use her own name, surely she could easily find the account info button at the top of this very page?

However, this appears similar to her usual modus operandi of relentlessly spamming the Front Porch Forum with anti-mall material, which many believe led to that campaign's failure because people were put off by her long-winded posts there, often exceeding 10-15 pages daily. This abuse of public forums is quite in keeping with the political strategies of a post-Trump era. Grill also tried to sabotage Bernie's campaign by smearing his wife during the election because of a personal grudge over being unceremoniously fired from her last academic post, years ago. She didn't care if Bernie, whom she supported, lost; her only small-minded and petty goal was to keep Jane Sanders out of the White House as First Lady (see http://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/jane-says-sanders-secret-weapon-or-a-political-liability/Content?oid=2670992).

However, if she doesn't get her way, we may expect to see this city council hopeful collapsing on the floor of the police station in tears again, which is where she was observed last summer after another failed campaign to stop the air show. Burlington, please dig deeper and ask yourselves who you really want having access to city government?
